How to set up multiple websites on vps?

New to inmotion hosting and have purchased a vps under the advice that we can run multiple websites from one server. The websites are for seperate clients so not connected in anyway. They will not need access to the server control panel. From reading the documentation it seems you do this by creating add-on domains which also create a sub domain on your primary domain. Does this mean that a site hosted on www.example.com can also be accessed via example.primary-domain.com? If this is the case then this is not good and if it is the case then how do you set up multiple separate domains that are not also linked to the primary domain?

Hello Lettie22, 

Thank you for your question regarding VPS hosting. If you would like for the websites to be entirely separate from each other, I recommend creating individual cPanel accounts for each site. Please see the following guide for instructions on creating additional cPanel accounts:
